B Entrepreneurs Response to the B Team Declaration

0 (0 Likes / 0 Dislikes)
We, B entrepreneurs agree with the B team. We also believe that the world is at a critical crossroad. We have been building new types of companies in order to bring people and businesses together to make the world a better place. In fact, society’s values and expectations are changing rapidly, and we think it is our responsibility to find ways for businesses to change accordingly. Technology is providing new ways for businesses to transform scarcity into abundance. And as more and more of the world’s inhabitants gain access to technology, they will have the tools to become part of the solution by generating economic opportunities with or without the help of NGOs and governments. Because we don’t buy into the principles of business as usual, we are creating our own business practices. That’s why we are the B entrepreneurs. Because we are already working on the Plan B. Our present challenge is to develop profitable businesses, which will also drive positive social impact. We disrupt education, we teach kids how to be makers and invent a new reality, we help to source environmentally friendly materials, we enable people and companies to interact in completely new ways, we create new medical tools for disadvantaged communities, we challenge people to think and act out of their comfort zone. And we know of many other people like us that are paving the way for a new business paradigm. We the B entrepreneurs, are happy that global leaders like you the B team share the same vision and stand up for these principles as we do. We also think it is not easy to change traditional ways of thinking, we face this challenge daily when we hear that we are too crazy, too idealistic, too innocent, too young. But when influential leaders like you, the B team, say that what’s better for the planet and its people is also better for business, you empower us to keep going on and drive change from the bottom up. We, B entrepreneurs from all around the world want to join forces with the B team. We can help you find new solutions, and you can help us validate our models, let’s start working together, now. What if every entrepreneur started working on projects that have the potential to positively impact the lives of one billion people? B entrepreneurs, let’s join the B team! Because. Beginning. Business. Beta. Believe.

We are the B Entrepreneurs, and we are inspired by the B Team, which was founded by Sir Richard Branson and Jochen Zeitz. In response to the B Team's declaration (vimeo.com/68285378), we created this video to show that we are already working on Plan B by creating sustainable businesses with a focus on long-term benefits for society.
